The semester starts with a one-week project that introduces Design Thinking as a method and a mindset. In subsequent projects with external partners from business and society, this knowledge is deepened and applied to current issues to be solved.
The students and professionals are guided by members of the D-School staff and by experienced professors and teachers from various disciplines.
Regular talks are given on the different phases of the Design Thinking process. Practical tips on project work complete the offer.
